Forum: feature_films Subject: Beyond the Time Barrier - Was Registration Valid?

For "Beyond the Time Barrier" on the original registration they did not put the complete title. With that would the original registration be valid as well as the renewal.
They registered "Beyond the Barrier" but renewed "Beyond the Time Barrier".

I don't believe it's still under copyright. I was told the film was sold at auction after the production company went under (bankrupt?). Anyway, that's what I was told... So if the company was no longer in existence in 1987, how could they renew it?

Just sayin'! :)

I did a Google search on Miller-Consolidated. According to this link Miller-Consolidated went bankrupt shortly after the release of "Beyond the Time Barrier". Consolidated Film Laboratories foreclosed on liens on "Beyond the Time Barrier" and its co-feature "The Amazing Transparent Man", then sold both to AIP for distribution. So your right Cosmico. A company that no longer existed could not have renewed a copyright.

Even if "Time Barrier" were still indeed copyright I could understand someone uploading it thinking it was pd. I've done that myself. My gripe is against those who do it intentionally. There is no way that any of the current tv shows I've been finding in CV are pd, and the uploaders of this material know it.
